Introduction: Christoph Klawe, Germany - Esperanto

30 September, 2018

Dear colleagues,

Herewith I would simply like to introduce me and my organization as a new member of HIFA. I am the current president of the Universal Medical Esperanto-Association  (UMEA), which aims at surpassing language barriers in medicine since 1908. Probably you will not have heard much about UMEA yet, but in fact it is quite a lively community with a good network. If you would like to learn something about Esperanto, I recommend as a primer https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esperanto. An article about the history and current situation of UMEA was published in the latest issue of the World Medical Journal“ https://www.wma.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/WMJ_2_2018.pdf

Looking forward to an effective collaboration,

Christoph Klawe
